  • What Is It?


    Borage oil is extracted from the seeds of Borago
    officinalis, an annual, bristly herb, originally indigenous
    to the Mediterranean region. The main fatty acid in
    borage oil is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), typically in
    concentrations of 17-20%. GLA is an essential fatty acid
    that has multiple physiological roles. Pure Encapsulations
    borage oil contains 20% GLA.*


    Uses For Borage Oil


    Healthy Joint, Immune System And Skin Support:
    Studies have indicated that GLA promotes healthy
    prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) production, which helps support
    healthy joints, as well has healthy blood flow and vessel
    function. A randomized, double blind, placebo controlled
    trial reported statistically significant support for joint health
    in subjects supplementing with GLA from borage seed oil.
    Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical
    School, Worcester, reported that GLA helps support
    healthy cytokine activity, a mechanism that may be linked
    to both immune system support and joint health. PGE1
    has also been associated with supporting and soothing
    the skin when used topically or taken orally.*
